About the hotel

The Red Lion in Buckland, Betchworth is a well established family run traditional English Country Pub & Restaurant with Accommodation set in a beautiful rural location yet centrally placed for access to London and the South East. The pub dates back to the early 18th century with parts of the main building being built around 1730. The Wisteria plant at the back of the main building is said to be 230 years old which would make it the oldest Wisteria plant in the country.

Our restaurant enjoys a good reputation for tasty, freshly prepared food which is available from 12. 00 to 21. 30 everyday. Our menu is a mix of traditional English classics like Pie of the Week & Fish Pie together with a wide variety of specials. During the winter months we close at 20. 00 on Sunday so please check-in before this time. Our bar stocks a number of well conditioned real ales, lagers, ciders, & Guinness, all on draft and complemented by a range of bottled beers and of soft drinks. We also have a wide range of spirits and a carefully selected range of wines which are sold by the bottle or glass. The accommodation, which is in a separate building to the pub & restaurant, consists of six large en suite rooms on two floors. All rooms have tea & coffee making facilities and flat screen televisions with built in Freeview. The whole interior was re carpeted and redecorated in 2009.

Business stay

The room was very clean, although a little basic and old fashioned.

The WiFi was very intermittent when in the room but slightly better when I tried in the lounge area. A previous review indicated that the cooked breakfast was served warm. As I was looking for a stay with a cooked breakfast I chose the Red Lion based on this review. However when I arrived I was told they only serve a Continental breakfast which I was not pleased about, reviews need to be accurate. The staff were friendly but when I arrived there was one member of staff to look after new arrivals and serve in the restaurant and bar, she was rushed off her feet.

Handy hideaway

The Red Lion offers comfortable rooms and really good food.

I was there on a steak night and enjoyed a delicious fillet for half price. Breakfast not a cooked affair so be aware if you're expecting one. Room looking a bit tired in places especially the bathroom, but overall this is a good place to stay. It's located in the countryside but not far away from Dorking, Reigate and major routes.
